Comet Analysis Software


The software applies state of the image processing methods to automatically locate and score comets to characterize and quantify the degree of DNA damage revealed by the comet assay. It is compatible with 4X images which allows for rapid screening of up to 300 comets in seconds when analyzing CometChip®. Trevigen’s Comet Analysis Software can rapidly evaluate large numbers of cells, related to each treatment group or screening target in a study, and generate summary statistics based on the corresponding numeric results.
